Four College of Humanities professors have been awarded the U's Career Services Faculty Recognition Award in its inaugural year. This new honor was created in an effort to recognize faculty members who are contributing to students’ career development and exploration.
These incredible winners include:
Con Psarras, Communication
Kimberly Mangun, Communication
Katharine Coles, English
Bruce Dain, History
"With a campus of more than 31,000 students, we recognize that our career coaching staff of 10 cannot possibly meet with every single one of these students multiple times, and for the majority of students, career conversations are not a one-time occurrence," said Kelly Dries, associate director of Counseling Services and Operations for U of U Career Services. " This is why one of our missions in Career Services is to foster a culture at the University of Utah where everyone is engaging in career conversations."
The winners will be honored at a recognition breakfast on March 4 with a keynote address by Vice President for Academic Affairs Ruth Watkins. On behalf of the entire college, we congratulate these incredible individuals for going the extra mile every day in their careers.
